* '''Straight''': All the villains are named after bands. The BigBad is only known as Queen. Her servants include Wings, Duran Duran, and Three Dog Night.
* '''Exaggerated''': Everything is named after a song. Allison and The Pretender stand alone against the Space Lord, and are cornered by his servants Razorface and Bat Out Of Hell while trying to escape on the Last Train To Clarksville.
* '''Downplayed''': No musical references are used other than songs, bands, albums, or terms that make sense as normal names. You may see characters named Layla, Mickey, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_(album) Gordon]], or even Mean Mister Mustard, or eat some meat loaf in Allentown, but things like T'Pau or Nowhere Man are unlikely to show up as names.
